Description

On the other side of the Gulf of Calvi is a beautiful site that transports us in an unforgettable setting.
Point of Spano (natural site), where small coves framed by the rocks offer a splendid view over the Bay of Calvi.

Spanu island is an island inhabited only by seagulls, its Genoese tower we offer many opportunities to spend our time agreeably. It is located at less than an hundred meters from the point Spano. It closes the N Gulf of Calvi, on the other side closed by the tip of the Revellata. Elongated island has an N islet and reefs around its eastern end.

From its position it is subject to prevailing winds from N and W (Mistral and Libeccio).

It is possible to anchor, by about 9 m, S the island.

De l'autre coté du Golfe de Calvi se trouve un site magnifique qui nous transporte dans un décor inoubliable.
La Pointe de Spano (site naturel classé), où de petites criques nichées dans les rochers offrent un splendide panorama sur la baie de Calvi.

L'île di Spanu est une île habitée uniquement par des mouettes, sa tour génoise nous offrent des nombreuses possibilités de passer agréablement notre temps. Elle est située à moins d'une centaine de mètres de la pointe Spano. Elle ferme au N le golfe de Calvi, fermé de l'autre côté par la pointe de La Revellata. De forme allongée l'île possède au N un petit îlot ainsi que des écueils autour de son extrémité orientale.

De par sa position elle est soumise aux vents dominants de N et d'W (Mistral et Libeccio).

On peut mouiller, par 9 m environ, au S de l'îlot.
